A DISPUTE OVER DITCHES AND
DITCH RIGHTS AT PHOENIX
Government "Want Land Owners to
Have Privilege of Catting Across
Other Land "Without Paying.
Phoenix, Ariz Oct. 8. In the new
contract which the reclamation service
is causing Salt River valley water
users to sign is a clause (clause 5)
which is provoking as much wrath as
Is the new scale of prices. The clause
provides that water users must, when
necessary to get water to another piece
of land, grant the right to the owner
of that land to dig ditches across his
land and. if a waste water ditch is
necessary, permission to dig that, too,
must be granted. Nothing is said in
the contract regarding compensation
for the land occupied by the ditches
and thus taken out of cultivation. The
reclamation service reserves the right
to refuse water to any water user who
refuses to comply with this clause In
the contract. -
The water users admit that means
should be found to get water to' any
land that may be put under cultiva
tion, but they believe that in case
ditches are dug across their land, thus
depriving them of the use of it. they
should be compensated for the actual
acreage occupied by the ditches.

The men had crawled to the depths

It will be noted that the taxes to be.
raised for the insane asylum funds
have been reduced but that is the only
item that has been reduced, though
the impression has gone abroad the
cost of maintaining the prison had
been greatly reduced. On the other
hand, a number of items have been in
creased and are added, viz: the fund
for the maintenance and improvement
of the Pioneers' home.
Big Increase In General Fund.
The greatest increase is in the gen
eral fund, out of which salaries are
paid which in 1911 was $0.106625 on
the $100 valuation and under the pres
ent administration, this year, is
$0.346933 on the $100 valuation. It is
this item which causes the political
enemies of governor Hunt and his fel
low administrators anger and make
them ready to fight him.
The members of the state boara of
equalization will not discuss the
whys or wherefores of the tax rate
except to say the budget or statement
of estimated expenses called for so
much money for each fund and the
rate of taxation was figured accord
ingly and the assessed valuation raised
to meet it.
Burden on Mines and Railroads.
The burden of the increased assess
ment falls on mines and railroads for
the most part, though lands and im
provements come in for a small in
crease, as does livestock. Town and
city lots and improvements thereon
show a small decrease.
The following tables show how the
taxes are distributed:
Land and improvements
All mining property
Town and city lotsnd Improvements.
All livestock .............
Railroads ............ ...
All other property
Total valuation of all property.
Less exemptions .............
Total subject to taxation
All other property In the table of
graph property in the state.
It will be noted that the mining
properties paid taxes In 1911 upon but
$19,242,331.26, whereas this year they
pay upon a valuation of $45,145,084.49.
Hitherto they paid upon a basis of 25
percent of their bullion output, where-
as this year they will pay upon an
ad valorem assessment.
Take the case of the United Verde,
which carried its assessment to the
or.vomn mirt haw it reduced from
$4,657,211.21 to 11,406.112.31, which
was its assessment iur j. xubu
the United Verde paid taxes mount
ing to J2S.122.24. The board of super
visors of Yavapai county., in which
United Verde Is located, stood behind
the company and tried to force the
reduction and carried the case to the
supreme court. They .were beaten and
the United Verde company will be
compelled to pay $32,087.22 in taxes
as against $28,122.24 last year.
Capital Out of Roosevelt Incident.
Arizona Democrats, both conserva
tives and radicals are Indulging in
much chortling over the revelations J
made in the Harrlman-Koosevelt cor
respondence exhibited before the senate
committee investigating campaign con-
tributions, rgarding the part played by
Harrlman in dictating to Jlr. Roose
velt who should not be named to fill
the important offices of governor and
chief justice of the supreme court of
Arizona. A compromise was evidently
effected in the appointment of Joseph
H. Klbbey as governor. Kent retaining
his place, as chief Justice.
The Democrats are using this re-
cej mmm J071430
ntsj , 056200
itvealed correspondence to show that
Roosevelt, so far from being a real
progressive, is completely under the
domination of the interests and did not
dare oppose them even in the matter
of appointing territorial officers, and
they are arguing that the Roosevelt of
1912 in no sense differs from the Roose
velt of 1905.
The stalwart Republicans are not
making much of the revelations. They
regret that their one time idol has
been found to have feet of clay. They
are sorry that Arizona has been be
smirched, in a sense, by the Bull Moose
candidate, as was New Mexico by the
part played by him in the summary and
seemingly unwarranted removal from
office of Gov. Herbert HT Hagerman,
which is being made an issue against
him in that state. -
Hunt and the Democrats.
If Gov. Hunt feels any resentment be
cent party council he does not show
the socalled conservative Democrats
who composed the majority of the re
centy party council he does not show
it. He refuses to talk about the mat
ter for publication on the ground that
it would be unseemly in him to dis
cuss the action of the party council so
far as It related to him personally. He
says that he Is pursuing a well defined
line of pplicy from which he does not
purpose being swerved simply because
some politicians are too hasty to await
results before passing judgment.

SILT BIB VALLEY
ILL TRY TO GROW SOU GiE
Beet Sugar Industry Is Successful, Glendale Having the
Largest Refinery of This Kind in the World Cot
ton Growers Are Also Securing Good Yields.
Planning to Develop More Power.
(By Georsc H. Clements.)
Phoenix, Ariz.. Oct S. The experi
ment of raising corn sugar as well as
beet sugar in the Salt River valley is
tn v trioi nut on a larze scale. The
goil and cliraatjc conditions have been
looked into carefully by critical ex
perts and they have decided that
sugar cane will grow abundantly hero
and that quality and quantity grown
will equal those of the Louisiana
fields. One thousand acres will be
planted and slips sufficient to plant
that acreage have been ordered.
Sugar Beet Industry.
The sugar beet Industry has long
been tried out in the Glendale dis
trict and has proved successful. Xhe
largest beet sugar refinery in the
world is at Glendale. In order to
stimulate present growers to Increase
their yield and to induce other farm
ers to give up alfalfa and grow sugar
beets, the factories are offering large
cash prizes to those who may excel
in 1913. Five dollars a ton is offered
now for next year's crop and bonuses
will be paid to those who grow more
than 33 tons to the acre. Prizes are
also offered boys and girls under 18
for the best acre of beets grown.
It is thought that Salt River valley
land will yield not less than $100
worth of cane sugar to the acre.
Cotton Is Grown Near Mesa.
Cotton growing is becoming quite
an Industry in the vicinity of Mesa,
long staple -sea island cotton which
brines the highest price in the mar-
VLket being the kind grown.
The lirst loan oi conon ui iue wi
crop was brought to the 3Iesa: gin on
Saturday. With the gin In commis
sion it is thought other growers will
begin to bring their crop to market
at once and keep the gin in opera
tion until the whole crop of the val
ley is readv for market. It Is thought
the crop this year will run between
one and one-half and two bales to the
Lands (Adapted to Cotton.
Much of the bench land in Mari
copa county on either side of the Salt
RiTer valley which cannot be irrigat
ed by gravity flow, but which may
be watered by means of pumps driven
by electric power generated at the
dam is said to especially adapted to
cotton growing. There are 50,000 acres
of those lands and should they all be
planted to cotton with the great yield
that obtains in the valley the Salt
River coton fields would be a factor
fn the cotton market.
"Water for irrigation, by pumping,
of these lands will be available from
the underflow of the Salt river, the
Agua Fria, the New river and the
Hassayampa. The cost has not been
determined, but judging from the cost
of pumping already being done in a
limited way it will cost but little more
too many $50 per month men holding
down $200 and $250 per month jobs,
and a high salaried commission is ap
pointed on the slightest provocation to
spend months in doing what a prac
tical man would intelligently Investi
gate and render an intelligent report
upon in 30 days for a fair wage and
""Mr. Hunt, if he hope's for further
political favors at the hands of the
people of Arizona, must forego many
of his fads and get down to the real
business management of the state. He
must reduce the state payroll or put
men In office and on his commissions
who will earn the salaries paid them."
To all of this, Mr. Hunt replies that
it Is not true. He admits that the
assessed valuation is higher by $44,000,
000 this year than last, and that the
tax rate has been Increased from 65
cents to 90 cents, but says it was
known to all that the expense of gov
ernment under statehood would be
greater than It was under territorial
form, when many expenses were borne
by the general government He de
nies also that his commissions were
unnecessary or that his commissioners
have been incompetent. So- far as his
prison policy Is concerned he believes
that time will prove It to be the proper
policy to pursue.

Plenty of rower.
It Is intended, when all the electric
generants contemplated under the
Roosevelt project are installed, thai
29,500 horsepower of electrical energy
shall be generated. Of this amount
but 7000 horsepower Is being generat
ed at the big dam. Of this, 2000
linreBimiver is brought to Phoenix
where it is used to drive the street 1
cars, ana pumps at me tiu ""
wnT-ira anil to lisrht the city. Propor
tionate amounts are used to light
Mesa, Tempe. Glendale and other
towns in the valley and to operate
the big Glendale sugar factories,
creameries, flouring' mills, canning
fnrtories and other industrial enter
prises. The balance of the 7000 horse- '
power generated Is being used by the 1
government to pump water for irri- :
gating purposes on inaian lanus.
New Tunnel Is Planned.
The plans for further generation of
electricity contemplate the construc
tion of a short tunnel seven miles south
of the big dam primarily to save 7000
feet of open air passage of the flow
of the river with consequent loss by
evaporation and incidentally to create
3500 horsepower of electrical energy.
Returning to Its original bed the river
will flow 20 miles to another tunnel
3500 feet long where another 3500
horsepower of electrical energy will
be generated. From there the river
flow will be carried in an artificial
channel along the hillside for several
miles to a point where It drops a
sheer 100 feet to feed turbines which
will generate 5000 horsepower. The
river from this point will flow in its
natural bed to Granite Reef dam,
where it is diverted into the main
canals, one north and the other south,
of the natural channel. On the south
side 2000 horsepower will be created
immediately by the fall and another
700 horsepower will be developed by
another fall a few miles farther on.
On the north side the water will
flow on almost a Jevel for 20 miles,
when It takes a sheer drop of 126
feet, giving fall enough to develop
7000 horsepower and a little farther
on will give another drop capable of
developing 700 horsepower, a grand
total of 29,500 horsepower.
Big Revenue from Power.
This will not be developed at once,
but the plans are ready and when the
energy Is needed and the money avail
able from the profits of "juice" al
ready sold "the machinery will be in
stalled. The electrical energy now being
used is being sold at $95 per horse
power per year. At that rate the total
horsepower which, it is said, can be
generated would bring $2,802,500 per
quarter, enough to pay operating ex
penses and maintain the dam with
all water for irrigation free to water
